less than 1 minute read • By Byron Tardif • June 9, 2021

We are happy to announce that App Service now supports apps targeting .NET 6 Preview 4 across all public regions and scenarios on both Windows and Linux App Service plans through (App Service Early Access).

Azure Functions has also added initial support for .NET 6 Preview.

This is the first time that a pre-release stack is publicly available in the platform ahead of GA release and it makes good on our promise to accelerate FX availability made during the .NET 5 GA release announcement.

Any app targeting the .NET 6 Early Access on App Service will be automatically updated to the latest .NET 6 Preview releases as they become available all the way up to RC and GA.
